Happy Anniversary Sanrio: Small Gift L.A.

11.14.2010

Happy Anniversary Sanrio! Two Sundays ago I took the ladies, Twinks and Jazel, to the Small Gift L.A. event at Barker Hangar in Santa Monica.

As you walk under the rainbow through a short hallway into Barker Hangar, it's like you entered another land ... a land of everything Sanrio ... Sanrio Land . Haha. Sanrio Land or Small Gift L.A. was a "superfun Sanrio experience for fans of all ages!" There were games, miniature golf, a ferris wheel, various activities and workshops, a pop-up shop, art show, etc. Plus, a lot of fanatic Sanrio fans of course. I was actually overwhelmed with all the chaos.

My first stop was the art. Enjoi.

Twinks wanted to check out the pop up shop. However, the line was ridiculously long. Seriously. The line went the length of the hangar. Maybe even longer. Never found the end of the line. Since the pop up shop was a lost cause, the three of us decided to check out the food trucks. Yes sir.
